  • PURPOSE OF THE MASTERCLASS 

The masterclass offered by the “Renaissance Brass Ensemble” aims to connect internationally renowned teachers with students who wish to receive guidance from those with top-level musical experience. The main topics covered by our teachers will include orchestral excerpts, concert repertoire, performance emotion management, and daily routines. 

Attention will also be given to amateur musicians; many excellent musicians are found in wind bands. Therefore, particular attention is given to those who wish to deepen their ensemble playing techniques to apply them in their usual musical environments. 

The synergy among all students will be emphasized. The final concert, to be held on August 3, 2024, will feature various ensembles created for the occasion and some pieces performed by the entire group with arrangements specifically created for the event. 

  • LOCATION OF THE MASTERCLASS 

The entire masterclass will be held at the “don Luigi Panarotto” building in Nove (VI), located at Piazza De Fabris no. 2. There will be 5 rooms available for individual lessons and a multipurpose room for ensemble lessons. The materials used will be kindly provided by the “Corpo Bandistico Novese,” which will also handle the logistics for the entire period. 

The concert will be held in the churchyard of the Arcipretale church in Nove. In case of bad weather, the concert will take place inside the church.
